Le Tigre's "HOT TOPIC" bridges generations |
There's endless talk about the major generational schism between old-school lesbian-feminists and today's young women, many of whom embrace all feminist values but reject the word "feminist." This is a song that bridges the gap completely, honoring the contributions of an amazingly diverse slate of people who've come before, calling to younger women to learn about these pioneers who could be/SHOULD be inspirational role models... and all with an irresistible musical hook. Kudos to Le Tigre!
